Update on Plans for Rhea Ripley’s Return

Update on Plans for Rhea Ripley’s Return – In recent weeks, WWE Raw has been primarily focused on Liv Morgan’s determined pursuit of Dominik Mysterio as she seeks to separate him from Rhea Ripley. This storyline gained prominence as Ripley, one of WWE’s top stars, was initially slated for a feud with Morgan before being sidelined by an injury in April.

The incident that sparked this intense rivalry occurred on the April 8th episode of Raw when Morgan attacked Ripley during a backstage altercation. Ripley’s shoulder injury, which necessitated a recovery period of at least four months, forced her to relinquish the Women’s World Title. Morgan later captured the title from Becky Lynch, setting the stage for Ripley to resume her feud with Morgan upon her return.

Renowned wrestling journalist Dave Meltzer has reported that Ripley is currently undergoing shoulder rehabilitation instead of opting for surgery. While there is a possibility that her recovery might extend beyond the original timeframe, WWE has made contingency plans for her return. According to Fightful Select, sources within WWE have indicated that the storyline is structured in such a way that Ripley can seamlessly re-enter the program whenever she is ready. Should the need arise, Ripley might make her return in a non-wrestling capacity.

Internally, there has been discussion about involving Ripley in the World Title program upon her return. This would be a logical progression given her previous involvement in the storyline before her injury. A source mentioned that the available storyline at the time of her return will dictate the specific programs she will be part of. Despite Ripley’s absence, many creative decisions have been made with her eventual return in mind.

While Fightful has not confirmed any active creative plans or direct inquiries with Ripley regarding her return, the hope within WWE is that she will be able to appear on screen in some capacity ahead of Summerslam, assuming her recovery goes well. Ripley’s anticipated return is expected to bring a significant boost to the Women’s division and reignite her rivalry with Liv Morgan, adding further intrigue and excitement to WWE Raw.
